Have you ever thought about travel by train? I’m not a huge fan of flying. (but yes, I’ll do it) At the time of this trip, I’d just been in an auto accident and was a “nervous” driver AND passenger. Translation? My hubby didn’t want to ride with me and I didn’t want to ride with him! So, he came up with a terrific idea! Let’s take the Amtrak to San Antonio. What a wonderful trip, people! If you like a slow-paced trip, visiting with people, walking & trolley-ing once you get there, and beautiful relaxation, this might be something to check out. Our first train, The Heartland Flyer, was from Norman, Oklahoma to Fort Worth, Texas. In Fort Worth, we boarded the Texas Eagle where we had our own private “roomette”. This included a nice meal in the dining car with several other travelers; a lively and fun server; and afterwards, in the viewing car, time spent railing through Austin, Texas at sunset. Upon arrival at San Antonio, Texas, taxis were waiting to take us to our temporary abode. We are SOOOO gonna do this again!!!
The pictures are not perfectly clear, as they were taken through the tinted windows, but the scenery was beautiful~
Hubby had his map AND his GPS. He was ready if they needed any help. While visiting with another “wife” in the dining car, she was laughing that her husband had brought his GPS. Oh yes, I told her!I loved that the cars had to stop for us!
